What is ADB?
Android Debug Bridge (adb) is a versatile command-line tool that lets you communicate with a device. The adb command facilitates a variety of device actions, such as installing and debugging apps, and it provides access to a Unix shell that you can use to run a variety of commands on a device. It is a client-server program that includes three components:
  • A client, which sends commands. The client runs on your development machine. You can invoke a client from a command-line terminal by issuing an adb command.
  • A daemon (adbd), which runs commands on a device. The daemon runs as a background process on each device.
  • A server, which manages communication between the client and the daemon. The server runs as a background process on your development machine

Why ADB?
ADB is required in order to do the following:
  • Unlock Bootloader
  • Flash custom recoveries like TWRP and CWM
  • Flash Custom ROMs
  • Enable Camera2API (For Google Cam)
  • Gain Root Access
  • Overclocking and Kernel Flashing etc.

How to install?
  • Download the Minimal ADB and Fastboot setup.exe from [LINK] or [LINK]
  • Follow the Installers instructions and select where you would like to install Minimal ADB and Fastboot too (For simplicity I choose to install it to the Desktop)
  • After you have chosen where to install Minimal ADB and Fastboot too select whether you would like to create a Start Menu Folder or not for the instalation
  • Once you have chosen where to install it to and if you want to create a Start Menu Folder select the install option
  • After the Installation Wizard has completed you can select to start Minimal ADB and Fastboot
  • You can also start Minimal ADB and Fastboot by navigating to the Start Menu Folder you choose to create during installation or the desktop shortcut you choose to create and selecting Minimal ADB and Fastboot
  • You should now see a command window open, with the command window open you can now issue ADB and Fastboot commands to your device
